A: This poured a nearly clear light gold with quickly dissipating white head.
S: It smelled like tart unripe apricot and lemon zest and grassy hops, with some funky must and spicy white peppercorn.
T: It tasted like tart unripe apricot and lemon zest, with some grassy hops and sweet candi sugar and funky must and spicy white peppercorn. It had a clean and crisp aftertaste with lingering bittersweet.
M: It was watery with lots of bubbly carbonation. Like a heavy champagne.
D: This was a very nice wild ale, although not super wild. The scent and taste were balanced and enjoyable. The body was fitting, and the finish was incredibly smooth with well hidden alcohol, so it was really easy to drink. Worth buying a second bottle to age, but enjoyable fresh. Not mind blowing, but a solid brew. Recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A-Poured an orangish tawny color with a 1-1.5 finger head that dissipated fairly quickly. However carbonation bubbles very active once head was gone.

S-Not an overwhelming smell, but pleasant none the less. Definitely a sweeter aroma that smells of light caramel.

T-A slight malty sweetness upfront before a mild tartness sets in and lingers a bit. Slight notes of citrus fruits and yeast on the back end with a bit of a tannic finish.

M-Excellent mouthfeel. A high level of carbonation that was balanced nicely with a medium to heavy body. Also had a nice dryness to it.

O-Overall this was a pretty solid beer, but I was expecting a bit more for the price and the names on the bottle. However I feel that it was a exceptionally balanced beer, that walked the line between sweet and sour. Glad I picked up two of these, looking forward to seeing what a bit of age does to this beer.

Served from bottle into a Green Man snifter. Poured a bright orange with a half finger off-white head that remained for quite some time. Maintained minimal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, citrus, bardyard funk, funk, and subtle tart. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, funk, fruit, and horse blanket. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. Upon first looking at this one it really reminded me of Supplication which I am a HUGE fan of. The only thing that kept it from getting a 4.5 in that category was the lack of lacing during the glass. Bummer… However, the aroma offered a really nice find as the Brett definitely dominated it in all aspects. There were some nice fruit and subtle tart notes poking through as well. On the flavor this one was definitely Brett dominated. This fact covered up quite a few of the more subtle flavors that almost made them impossible to identify. If you are a lover of Brett, you need to get your hands on this one without question. A definite must try.

750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Slightly hazed orange-amber body under a super dense head of creamy white foam. Very light lace. Ok.

S: Powerfully sweet, complex fruitiness. Tropical fruit, pear, apple, and cotton candy. Very nice, enchanting fruity funk. Green apple, green onion, goodness.

T: Citrus, pear, apple, funky hay, and bread. Really good.

M: Lively, frothy, lightly prickly. Very effervescent.

O: I didn't know exactly what to expect based on what some of my friends had told me about this beer, but I really liked it. The nose in particular was enthralling, as its green apple funkiness in particular reminded me of an authentic Lambic. I wish it had been as sour as one, but it was delightful in its own way. I can't wait to see what a year or two does to my other bottle.

Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: This beer pours a nice cloudy apple cider looking body with a thick white head that slowly fades.

S: An extremely sour and tart smell with almost a sour candy type smell. I am also getting a tiny bit of bubble gum. I absolutely love the smell of wild ales and this is one of the better ones in my opinion.

T: The flavor is pretty mild at first, but then the longer that it sits, the better the flavor. There is a bit of sourness, some bubble gum and a nice amount of sweet grain that lingers for a long time.

M: Very smooth and easy to drink. There is a perfect amount of crispness on the back of the tongue and the back of my throat.

O: This is just a bad ass beer. I know the ratings really dont show up on here, but if you havent tried this yet, you for sure need to take a chance on it.

4.09/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- clear shiny copper colored with streams of extremely tiny bubbles rising hurriedly upward. Despite this, the loose off-white foam quickly settles to a narrow ring with a continent in the middle that resembles Antarctica. No lacing, merely legs like wine.

S- highly phenolic and peppery aroma with tart fruity undertones from the brett. Very nice funky barnyard horse blanket with some of the structural barn wood thrown in as well. Orange, green apple, peach, plum and sour cherries, some grassy notes and mild grain.

T- spicy and mild with just enough brett to make things interesting. The tartness isn't forceful or bold at all though-- it sneaks in and sneaks out without making much noise perhaps because this bottle (I'm assuming) is only a few months old. The funky and fruity aromas carry over nicely to the flavor but trying to nail down actual fruit flavors is difficult due to the fleet footed brett. A generalized description of peach plum and cherries fits the bill, and bits of grassy herbal hops regulate the toasty and somewhat sweet, cartilagenous malt backbone. The finish is mostly phenolic and mildly tart, with suggestions of green peppercorns and Granny Smith apple peel.

MF- great refermented and yeasty feel with a soft powdery character and extremely plush carbonation. Tannic feel on the cheeks and somewhat numbing.

D- well hidden alcohol is an initial indicator of the craftsmanship that went into this beer but it still seems a little "green" and I feel it would benefit immensely from a couple years in the cellar. For the most part, it's a mild mannered creature and it's nature begets drinkability. This however is simply an evolutionary defense mechanism and the brux should be approached with caution when in its native environment.

Odd... An Idaho BA as the first review for a brew with such pedigree. Cool, I guess!

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What began as mutual admiration between Sierra Nevada’s Grossman Family and Russian River’s Cilurzos has grown and progressed into genuine friendship. Brux began as an idea and has grown into something altogether different:

The liquid manifestation of change over time.

Refermented in the bottle with Brettanomyces bruxellensis, Brux will change and develop over time. Copper-colored, dry and complex, with slightly tart notes of green grass, pear, spice and lemon - this ale will progress in the bottle for many years.
***

Picked up tonight at Bier Thirty for what I think is a pretty reasonable $15... Thanks Chris!!

My friend "beer guy at the COOP" Matt (reinheitsgematt) shared one of these earlier tonight... and we were both surprisingly happy.

Poured into my slim tulip... Decent head doesn't really stick around for too long... the brew is clear dark golden..

Nose is earthy with some nice fruity esters... pear and light white peach... some bits of fresh cut hay...

Flavor is much more dry than I would have guessed... again lightly earthy.. dry grass... hints of Basque Cider.. Bretty notes are mild... I honestly expected more.. maybe some minor "clove" phenols but that could be in my imagination.

With warmth more fruitiness arises.. so does some background maltiness .. sorta honey notes.... That will give the "BRUX" something to chew on for a while.. Sorta $$ pricey note for a reasonably available brew is cool.

Body is light/medium .... seems a touch thick for an AWA... carbonation is good (small bubble) and sorta spritzy..

I guess I was expecting more for a collaboration from two such well established breweries.. Still pretty damn good... I will buy more and doubt I will touch one for a year.

Very cool collaboration idea.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden orange. The 1/2 white head dissapates quickly.

The usual brett nose is there, but not in a big way. Mild funk gives way to notes of grass, citrus, and green apple.

Tart green apples and black pepper up front with pear and earthy funk on the finish. This beer is very young so I expect that the brett will come into it's own in the bottle I'm aging. That being said, still very tasty. incredibly balanced, and easy drinking. Sounds odd, but I was hoping for less balance!

There is a sweetness there that I'm sure the brett will eat up in 6-12 months time. Great beer, looking forward to reviewing again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a modest head that fades rather quickly leaving a few splashes of lace behind

Smell: Bready, with orchard fruit (apples, pears and peaches) with a vinous underlay and a bit of barnyard funk

Taste: Opens with a bready character that persists, underneath, while the vinous grape flavors add tartness; in the background, the orchard fruit adds another angle; after the swallow, the funkier flavors arrive and the Brett dries everything out in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Clearly an entry point to Brett beers for the uninitiated, this beer brings a fair bit of complexity, as well; it will be interesting to see how this develops

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour into my delirium tremens tulip, the beer pours a golden amber color with good head retention and light, fair lacing. The nose is absolutely exotic in this beer, as I pick up cherry, light sour funk, ginger, light vanilla, lavendar and toffee nouget. Alas, the beer doesn't taste quite as good, but it's not bad. I really think SN got a bit carried away with the amount of brett they managed to innoculate this beer with, as it's a bit over the top. Otherwise, I get considerable cherry, light butter and vanilla at the forefront, all of which is completely dominated by the brett flavor (I really think that's where the butter flavor is coming from). There's something of a woodruff syrup flavor to this beer as well, which is odd, to say the least. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a moderately sweet, brett infused finish. The funky brett flavor is really a bit much.

A very interesting beer, but ultimately, not something I can see wanting very often.

Another bottle from my guy BDavids

A- Pours a light orange which is fitting since we're watching the Illini pwn Western Michigan. Some head but not much sticks around

S- More background beer flavor than most sours. I like that. Very mild scent with a little kick right where you want it to be

T- Just a touch of sourness with more malt and citrus flavors coming through. Good stuff!

M- Prickly in the front, smooth in the back. Mullet beer ;)

O- Good beer, not super sour but its a nice take on the style

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a relatively clear golden yellow with absolute loads of carbonation producing a 4+ inch rocky white head. Wonderful retention...just seems to continously re-feed itself...lasts forever.
S: Pleasantly fresh brett aroma predominates...tart, sweet, and sour. Melon and fresh fruit. Spice and white pepper too.
T: Doesn't quite hold up to the promise of the aroma...but still nice. Milder notes of brett, candi sugar, light caramel malt, melon, lemongrass, and hint of spice (more apparent with warming).
M: Extremely effervescent...tons of carbonation tingle. Light body (and a bit thin)...lighter than you'd expect from the ABV. Sweet with a hint of tart/sour. The beer is pleasant while in your mouth, but doesn't linger much at all on the palate...which knocks it down a peg for me.
D: A lighter, nicely complex, and easily drinkable beer. Good with lighter picnic fare. Started off excellently and finished solidly. Nice to have once, but I don't see myself revisiting this one.

Pours light orange with hazy golden hues and a deep fizzy 2 finger off white head

Smell has some light Belgian yeast notes forward and some aromas of peppercorn
That give it a slightly spicy smell. There is also a slightly cider like tartness to the backend

Taste is great there is some more spicy peppercorn like yeasty phenols forward that is followed by a crisp light cider like flavor along side some grainy malt. There is a slightly sweet, slightly sour, dry finish that ties is all together nicely

Mouthfeel is hoot high carbonation give is a crisp fizzy frothy mouthfeel that Works well with the medium body and sour finish.

A- Pours a rich, sparkling orange into my DFH glass. A crisp, two finger brilliant white head floats atop... but quickly fades away as it does with most wild ales. No real trace of lacing left behind. Looks really dense for something that sparkles with carbonation the way this one does.

S- Lemon zest, grape must with a healthy dose of barnyard and compost pile. Some orange and pineapple sweetness, nutty wheat, coriander, thai basil, pink peppercorns, and hints of banana lying beneath. A real nice balance of citrus, spice, sweetness, and that always familar manure/compost note.

T- Citrus and peppercorn spice surrounded by manure. Really nice balance of that barnyard/chicken shit funk that we all love. It has a caramel sweetness lying behind the sour funkiness. I love how the sour lingers and wraps around the tongue. Just a little touch of alcohol that opens it all up.

M- Crispy, bubbly, sour citrus, and a really dank manure finish. Some spice, sweetness and that lovely Brett yeast.

O- Definately gonna have to grab a couple more of these to cellar. I'd love to see what happens to this after a year. I bet it'll really open up and blossom.

Pours a light orange, nectarine color. Not really hazy, but opaque because the continually rising bubbles kind of get in the way. A finger and a half of white, uniformly small bubbles form the head. Good retention, it's been in my snifter for over five minutes and the head is still there.

The Brett dominates and I'm ok with that. Funky is the only way to describe it. Pear, green apple and some white pepper fill out the card.

Everything in the nose makes its way to the tongue. The Brett yeast is the star, with supporting roles by the pear, green apple, and pepper. Very spicy finish, along with some cut grass.

It's very, very dry. Fairly spicy finish. A bit tart. Funky. Almost sweet at the beginning, but that peters out quickly. Medium bodied and relatively easy to drink, despite the high ABV.

A heavy-weight collaboration by two beers gods from the States. It doesn't disappoint. A bit expensive at $15 a bottle (at least in Indiana that's expensive), but actually worth it.

Had this on tap at the Russian River brewpub.

Pours a hazy golden color, with a wispy, tight packed head. It doesnt last long but leaves plenty of lace behind. The aroma is pretty subdued with some brett barnyard, some bicuity malt and a bit of tartness. The taste is sour but in a much more restrained way than the other RR sour ales. Funkyness from the brett is less concentrated than I was expecting. The mouthfeel light bodied with a nice medium carbonation. The finish is minerally and tart with some leathery funk. Alcohol is incredibly well hidden throughout.

An excellent Wild Ale, but a little restrained. Some age will probably really open this up.

I'm in WV and somehow I'm the second person to review this? Anyway, here goes.

Purchased at the Irish Pub in Lewisburg, just arrived the day I bought it. Poured in a tulip glass.

A- pours a light copper color with a bit of an orange hue when held to the light. A little cloudy when cold, then turns to clear. Very little head with minimal lacing.

S- earthy, Forrest floor, straw, lemon grass, pears, and a kick of spicy hops on the back end.

T- fruity notes with a lemon tartness, funky and yeasty with a bit of clove, follows very similar to a typical Belgium. Finishes dry with a citrus/yeast linger.

M- med-light in body, light spritzy carbonation, quite drinkable. Does a great job of masking that 8.3 ABV.

O- I can see why wild ales can be off setting to some, the funkiness from the yeast inst for everybody. I found this one quite enjoyable, but I guess I was expecting a little more considering the collaboration this one came from. I imagine this would become much more complex with aging and would be interested in cellaring one if I can get my hands on another bottle.

750ml, corked and caged. Split and poured into a snifter.

A: Pours an opaque hazy golden orange with a 1 finger head that disappears immediately. Tons of visible carbonation. No real lacing.

S: Right of the bat a sourish fruit with a hint of funk. An earthy mint like quality gives it a zing. Some fig and roasted malt as it warms.

T: Fruity wine like taste with great sour overtones. Can get a nice oak and vanilla from it too. Spice is in there like cinnamon and allspice.

M: Has a nice crisp carbonation but is still very smooth. Has a full bodied. Real carbonated throughout the glass. Very drinkable for the abv.

Overall I want another one to age. This will become a great sour down the line. The spiciness was a nice addition I wasnt expecting.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Serving Type - Draft at Russian River Brewery

Appearance (3.0) - Hazy orange liquid. Fairly clear while still a little cloudy. Thin head less than half a finger dissapates almost immediately, no lacing to speak of. Very thin ring of fine bubbles around glass. Haziness and color are pleasant while the rest is underwhelming.

Smell (3.0) - Not much going on here either. Faint smell carries whiffs of Belgian yeast, bread, apricot, and a hint of clove. Underpowered in my mind, but perhaps that's intentional. Wild yeast is unapparent.

Taste (4.5) - Here the beer begins to shine. Mild balanced flavor belies the 8.3% ABV. Pleasant notes of farmhouse, tart fruits - especially sour kiwi, light golden cherry, and faint tangerine. Yeasty breadiness throughout. Satisfying and refreshing, with a very smooth character that is quite nice. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel (4.5) - Another point for Brux, the mouthfeel is extremely pleasing. Creamy, round, medium bodied, this brew has balanced carbonation with a crisp, dry, mildly acidic finish. At the same time the feel is watery enough to prove very refreshing.

Overall (4.0) - An interesting and enjoyable beer, though not life- changing. Drinkable and refreshing, crisp and mildly tart, Brux is a smooth operator. It's drinking very well young.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium-light golden hue with a light haze and a robust effervescence. Head pours several fingers of fizzy ivory foam which dissipates rather quickly. Not too bad.

Smell: sweet malt with a light, refreshing tartness. Simple, but clean and enticing.

Taste: sweet malt with a good, rich flavor rather like a tripel. Tartness is low, which I wasn't expecting, based on the smell, but it works well here. There's a little bit of Brett-y funk in the mix along with a chalkiness that smooths the whole thing out. An interesting selection of flavors that I think works quite well.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a mammoth carbonation and concomitant bodacious creaminess. Hot damn tamale! Love it.

Overall: a very interesting wild ale. It is not over the top, but it develops a nice range of wild ale flavors. Good stuff; I'd have it again.

Corked bottle pours a clear golden yellow/orange with the first glass, and a lot of head! Second and third glass got progressivly hazier as the beer went on, with not as bad head as it was just gushing at the start of pouring. I thought each glass got better as the beer got more cloudy. Some slight spice, funk and almost like a mild belgian strong pale ale. Very easy to drink as the alcohol is well hidden. I tried to hold off on opening this as long as I could, but I couldn't wait any longer. Its a decent Sierra Nevada offering overall.
